Victor Transmission
I went to Victor transmissions because it was close to my house, he test drove my car and said that I will have to leave the car so he can check it. I asked him if it will need to be rebuild and he said maybe not, he has to check the car more thoroughly, so I asked him if it needed a rebuild, and how much? He told me that a rebuild on my Ford Crown Victoria Police will be $950 out the door and that the price was the best around. So I decided to leave the car so they can check it. It cost $ 75 and then he will call me back with a quote to see if it will need a full rebuild, later that day he said yes it needs to be rebuild and he said it will be only $1040 so I told him to go ahead and rebuild it because for a rebuild that is a good price, then he said BUT when we opened the tranny it may need extra parts if a part is not rebuildable that's when I knew the low price catch so I asked him worst case scenario how much and he said $1500, so I figured that I will be paying about $1500. After opening the transmission he called me back and guess what he said?? YEP it needed more parts like I thought then he quoted me the new price of $1430. The transmission work was done fast and very good these guys know their work, my car drives like brand new, smooth shifts not one drop of leakage and my car feels faster! excellent work Victor Jr, Then he checks your car two weeks later to make sure everything is good and you get a one year warrantee. So the work is good but the only thing I didn't like was the price going up you get good work, but don't be mistaken your going to pay for it. Buy the way, my car is a 2008 with 70K miles and is an ex police vehicle, these cars are very strong and well built, keep this in mind.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
